Riding the amazing wave of BEAMS festival which brought 15,000 people into our laneways, the Chippendale Creative Precinct are launching an exciting new initiative in 2015 to keep the streets of Chippendale buzzing. We are now running FREE Gallery Tours every single month.
Through the CCP’s extraordinary unification of small businesses run by passionate creatives, Chippendale has undergone a cultural revival and is emerging as Sydney’s main arts hub; a creative hideaway tucked within a vast urban cityscape.
On the first Saturday of each month, starting March 7th, we are offering a free guided tour around the galleries of Chippendale. Each tour will visit up to five galleries, and guests will be fortunate enough to hear talks given by gallerists and featured artists. It will be a wonderful opportunity for visitors to engage with Chippendale’s edgy art scene in a relaxed social setting, over a complimentary glass of wine (or two).
What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than exploring the hidden gems of Chippendale. The creativity and magic of BEAMS festival hasn’t left Chippendale for the year; it lies inside our gallery doors, waiting for you to find.
